Abstract

Methods originally developed by Saaty (1977) for modelling the importance of attitudes are applied to a set of attitudinal data associated with the views of an expert group on the development of urban systems analysis and modelling. Saaty's model is first described, emphasising the technique for recovering the importance or weight of issues from pairwise comparisons of the same issues, and showing how manageable comparisons can be handled by decomposing a large set of issues hierarchically. The model is adapted and extended to encompass the idea of an 'average' set of attitudes through the construction of an average hierarchy from the individual attitudinal hierarchies. The ideas are then applied to the respondents' data. -from Author
